So You Think You Can…

I admit it. I’m a “So You Think You Can Dance?” junky. This is somewhat a surprise to me. Generally speaking I don’t like contest driven reality show television. I don’t watch American Idol, I never tune into the Bachelor and forget about America’s Top Model.

I’ve been thinking about what makes the show fascinating for me. And I think I figured it out. This show is about real talent, pushing limits and having passion that never extinguishes. In an interesting way I like the show because I identify with the participants. While you won’t catch me leaping on stage, or doing a pirouette, I love what I do, passionately.

I can’t help but wonder if everyone had the passion these dancers share, and mentors who wanted them desperately to succeed, what amazing innovation our businesses could drive.
